At Midnight

I got this question off our Fan Fiction section that was submitted to me and I’d like to answer it here. The question was: “Hi, just wondering if you happened to see Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan acting out your story “kidnapped” on “At Midnight” on Wednesday and, if so, what you thought of it?”

My reply- “Yes I have seen it and at first viewing it I didn’t think anything of it. When the dialog was said I was like wait a minute why does this sound familiar? After viewing it I went back to one of my stories that I had written called, “Kidnapped”. And was totally shocked, I was never contacted from the show if they could use my writing. When my stories appeared on Graham Norton I was contacted and I gave them permission to use whatever they wanted to show Daniel. But I had no knowledge of it from this one. I don’t know why things I write are being put on television. But I actually liked that they had fun with it. Seeing Dane DeHaan act it out with Aubrey was like a dream come true, because when I write these stories I view them in a movie format. I see the characters in my head and their emotions. I could tell Dane wanted to laugh after the last bit. It put a smile on my face to see that he had the courage to do something crazy that I wrote. He’s got one up on Daniel. Seeing my writing out there does not make me angry and it doesn’t hurt my feelings because I can laugh at it too.”
